"After two long years of dreaming about this, I am so excited to finally share my lip kit with you guys. The Kylie Lip Kit is a collection of shades and products I handpicked with an amazing team to design the perfect “Kylie lip”. I can’t wait to see how beautiful everyone is going to look. Use the hashtag #LipKitByKylie to share your photos with me."
The Lip Kit is your secret weapon to create the perfect 'Kylie Lip.' Each Lip Kit comes with a Matte Liquid Lipstick and matching Lip Liner. This ultra-long wearing lip liner has a creamy texture that glides across the lips for a very easy and comfortable application. The Lip Liner sharpens easily in most standard sized sharpeners - just make sure your sharpener is not dull! The Liquid Matte Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out.
Each Lip Kit is applied with one swipe color that glides across lips and dries down to a powdery-soft, matte finish. Homogenous color in natural nudes and deep browns give unparalleled comfort and wear. The oil free formula has 25% pigment which provides instant color. The perfect blend of waxes, silicone and polymers give you smooth and easy glide color, with longwearing properties. The Lip Kit by Kylie is not tested on animals.

Shipping Box Edit
In February 2016, Kylie Jenner started shipping the lip kits in a special box that she designed herself. The box was white on the outside with black drops "leaking" on its sides. On the inside, it was completely black with a grey "Kylie" logo on the inner side of the top.
In May, Kylie announced that she has decided to change the design of the box to make it more unrecognizable after many customers were upset because they had received an empty box as the ease of recognition of the boxes meant that products were frequently stolen from doorsteps and by some postal workers. The new box is completely black on the outside and the drops that were black and on the outside are now white on the inside. Inside the box contains a promotional photo with a message from Kylie and the products customers had ordered from her site.
